In 1995, the Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP) released 2,000 hardcover 24-page books that highlighted each Federal Reserve Bank and included a $10 banknote from each district. This particular set is exceptional since the BEP no longer issues a high-range serial number, such as Solid-9s, for general circulation.
